Time’s ‘Person of the Year’ for 2038

Sierra Mañana, author and revolutionary, was unheard of a mere eighteen months ago. Then, her book A People’s Planet; You are the Saviour of Earth was published, and has since been translated into almost fifty languages on its way to becoming one of the most influential texts of our time.

Sierra exploded onto the scene with a fiery brand of social justice rhetoric allied with cool-headed political acumen, and this blend saw her whip up a frenzy of support across indigenous America and aboriginal Australasia. Soon, she was co-ordinating paramilitary operations of breathtaking audacity against governments everywhere on the Latin American continent.

Nobody knows what Mañana looks like – hence our cover image of a question mark sewn onto a balaclava – but it is abundantly clear by this stage that she is a capable, determined, irrepressible force to be reckoned with. Her supporters refer to her as ‘el Ángel de la Libertad’ – the Angel of Liberty. Conversely, those who oppose her describe her as ‘la Puta del Infierno’ – the Whore from Hell. Despite the dichotomy, both groups share one thing in common; they all are in awe of her abilities.

Only time – and Time – will tell if she can maintain her impressive momentum.

Solidarity, brothers & sisters…
